The game of hockey is constantly changing and so is the way we outfit players. From the pads you wear to the stick you use, there are new and improved models coming out every year. Among all these moving parts, one thing has remained constant: the need to look like a team. No matter the level of play, it’s always important that your team dresses in the same colors and maintains a consistent style. While many players still prefer more traditional hockey pants, we are seeing more and more skaters switching up their gear with ice hockey girdle covers. This makes it even easier for players to match their teammates, especially when they play on multiple teams.
Shells vs. Traditional Hockey Pants
Hockey shells are lightweight outer layers that are commonly pulled over girdles. This allows players to easily change the color of their uniform without needing to purchase a new (and expensive) pair of pants. Although most of these hockey breezer covers can be worn over pants as well, hockey girdles and shells typically allow for a broader range of motion due to the snug fit. Some players feel that hockey pants provide a looser and more comfortable feel, but it all comes down to personal preference. Quality ice hockey girdles typically provide the same level of protection as pants with the added benefit of shell customization.
Advantages of Pro Stock Hockey Shells
At ProStockHockey.com, we stock authentic hockey pant shells straight from NHL locker rooms, which means you’ll find exclusive (and discontinued) styles and throwback colors that you can’t get anywhere else. Not to mention, they include official NHL branding from different teams across the league.
The major differences between our pro stock hockey girdles and shells and the retail versions are the quality and price. From the top brands such as CCM, Bauer and Warrior, the shells and girdles in our inventory are manufactured to the highest possible standards because they were made to be used at the highest level of competition. This means they come with slight modifications for improved performance, comfort and maneuverability. Also, we are able to affordably price our NHL pant shells.
